    Sounds like you've got specific requirements which you've thought about already so it is now a matter of choosing a racket. I would say look at a few and test them out to narrow your search. Ask your local stringer to give you some pointers. They may know of someone who has demo rackets or people selling used ones.

    BTW what one person thinks is the best could be someone's worst. Racket choice comes down to your own feel.

    Stiff+ , stable and head light to balanced is what you need. Eg. MX80, NS9900.

    Agree with Visor - MX80 or NS9900 would be a good shout as would a BS10 which is really fast and accurate due to stiff shaft.

    Yeah but performance with 9900 drops as your muscles get used to a lighter racket.

    mx80 is head heavy. ns9900 swings fast but isn't that head light - more head heavy than an arc7!

    arc10 is good for control, not quite so hot on defense, but better than mx80. ns9900 would be the other way around - good at defense, good repulsion, but lower control due to fast head speed.

    Interesting - never used one long enough to experience this. For me BS10 is one if the best all rounders, same with BS11 for those who like slightly more flexible shafts. Racket choice is subjective though!

    I do agree with Ben, although i only held BS10 for like 2 minutes (demo set), it have a smooth flow when i tried it out (the feeling is really different that i cant really describe in words). I must say BS series is really one of a kind racket ... crap, now i feel like i have to get a BRAVE SWORD LOL!

    Do not know why,
    but for me, I defend best with the li ning N 90II and the control is good too(only the N90 is better for me)^^

    Everyone have their own choice, can't really decide for TS. I'm like Ben, victor for me but I still like my Li Ning bp 770 =X haha
